In English, children worked on using description further. They are using adverb starters with a comma and some are even using adverbial phrases with commas. They worked on using powerful adjectives along with including a variety of punctuation. On Tuesday, I showed the children a video of Danny MacAskill doing tricks on his bike. You can check out the video again here on YouTube! They came up with some great descriptive writing based on this video. Can you remember some of your best description? If so, write a sentence or two in the comments section for the world to see!
In Topic, we have finished off our unit on the Mediterranean. Children have found answers to most of the questions they had at the start of the unit. Our next unit starting after the half-term break is all about sound. Children will get the opportunity to make their own instrument, so collecting some empty cereal boxes or paper towel rolls may be quite helpful!

Homework for over the half-term break is pretty simple. Children have written out their targets for Maths and English. All they need to do is write out their own questions/sentences to show me they can achieve each of their specified targets.
Always read and record in your yellow log book. I've checked through everyone's yellow log book and almost everyone is using the correct format with regular reading now, which is great to see. Be sure to study your spellings and times tables whenever you get a chance over the week also.
Above all, have a fun and safe half-term break everyone!
